How do we use your donation?

Since 1917, Home Sweet Home Ministries has been providing food, shelter and hope to the hungry, homeless and hurting of our community. Today, we continue that mission with the help of resources generated through our Retail Operations programs. 100% of the net proceeds from Mission Mart and Warehouse Operations support our vision to provide refuge and renewal for those in need.
